of controversy over the obama administration's message on the death of four americans in libya. many people think u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice passed on misleading information about the attack in defending herself, rice is going after some of her high-profile critics in congress. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country. i always have and i always will. i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded, but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. gregg: senator lindsey graham is a republican senator from south carolina. he joins us now on the telephone. senator, thanks for taking a few moments. in calling senator mccain's criticism of her unfounded, is ambassador rice wrong? >> well, here's what motivates senator mccain and myself. what happened in benghazi before, during and after, how did it become a death trap, why wasn't it closed, the conflict closed or reinforced, why couldn't you help these poor people for eight hours on 9/11, a day of heightened securi
it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi

about what's going on with the obama administration, and that doesn't sound like a positive secretary of state to him because they need to show their ability to be independent. but, again, senator corker's office now saying they believe they have a private meeting with ambassador rice. >>> it's often lost in politics of the fiscal cliff is how a cliff dive will actually impact your personal finances. and whether you have a job or not if you pay taxes, you're going to take a hit. first place you're going to see it, the federal tax rate for a middle income family. and that means an extra $2,000 out of pocket. next is the payroll tax. if you make, say, $50,000 a year, that's another $1,000 that you're going to fork over to uncle sam. then there is the alternative minimum tax, 27 million will be hit with this for the first time ever. and it's a separate calculation from the regular tax, the average cost, $3,700 a year. then there's the spending cuts, pre-cliff, if you're unemployed, you get 99 weeks of benefits, post cliff, 26 weeks. and home interest perks, bye-bye, those could all be go

the course of these interviews that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. the point these republican senators have been making is that that was a political statement because that served the white house well, to say that kind of thing before the election, because this was a big part of the president's campaign. >> interesting. >> that he got rid of bin laden. did she know the classified information? if so, why did she say that publicly about al qaeda when she may not have been able to talk about al qaeda with regard to this attack but might have known about it. >> so mccain said rice asked for this meeting. in light of what dana just said, how can rice win him over? >> look, i don't think it's about rice winning him over. i don't think this is about susan rice as much as it is about the unanswered questions of benghazi. we must understand something. there's very little leverage that senators in the minority have. one of the few things they can do is really make nominations and confirmations difficult. it's part of our system of checks and balances. i've seen it happen

'll disagree with that. but from my view, the obama administration has made it clear, the republicans are in the same place, though i think their anti-federal wing they have party has move today extreme. i look for a shift in inch cament -- to implementation as i mentioned and oversight, waivers that the department's granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation, accountability, i think a much-needed effort there. regardless of what those rules are, though, it seems to me this area is ripe for cooperation between the center right and center left. i also know that secretary duncan has said a few time he is wished he had done more on early childhood education. i'm not sure if they're going to propose a new initiative. i certainly hope so. but i think it's a ripe area for investment and reform. now my points are right, the blurring line the need for implementation, the need for a centrist coalition that embraces teachers and parent, that needs fighting on two fronts. while recognizing new issues will emerge that probably fuel this -- few of u
's told care overhaul with the acquiescence of the obama administration. the court ordered the federal appeals court in richmond virginia to consider the claim by liberty university in lynchburg virginia that obama's healthcare law violates the school's religious freedom. a federal district judge rejected the claims and the fourth u.s. circuit court of appeals or read the lawsuit was premature and never dealt with the substance in the school's argument. the supreme court upheld the health care law in june. also today the court announced its leaving in place the corruption conviction of a former louisiana congressman who had many in his freezer. justices rejected without comment an appeal by the former representative william jefferson serving a 13 year term in federal prison. he was convicted in 2009 after fbi agents investigating obligation from corruption found $90,000 in cash hidden in jefferson's freezer. a federal appeals court upheld all but one of the 11 accounts on which the jury convicted jefferson. congress is back this week following last week's thanksgiving break you listen

extended, they were extended again under the obama administration. that's our focus today. part of a series that we're doing here on the "washington journal" that starts today. focusing on different aspects of the so-called fiscal cliff talks. we'll go to michael next in fenton, michigan, independent caller there. good morning. are you with us? caller: yes. host: you're on the air, sir. caller: yes, i'm calling this morning to discuss the facts that the disparity in the revenue that's generated in the different tax brackets. it's my understanding that the top 5% roughly makes $150,000, let's just say $200,000 and up. they generate almost 60% of the taxes that the government takes in, the revenue that the government takes in, while the other 95% takes in probably less than 40% of the revenue. guest: i can't recall the exact statistics but it's true that the top few percent aisles of the income distribution pay a hugely digs proportion at share of taxes -- disproportionate share of taxes and that's because they capture a disproportionate amount of income in this country. that come downs to th
, a soup sandwich. you just had a lot of things coming at you. how wow grade how the obama administration handled in an extraordinarily unique crisis four years ago? >> look, we got a rule at the university which is we never let professors grade their own papers because they're not likely to be objective. but i think -- >> let me ask -- why did you get -- >> i think the right thing -- i think basically the right things were done. the evidence that the right things are done comes from the way the united states looking compared to four years ago versus the way europe looks, versus the way japan looks. the evidence comes from looking at the fact that if you looked at the fall of 2008 on every important indicator, the stock market, jobs, industrial production, global trade, whatever you choose, it was worse than 1929. and if you look at what's happened, it's not where we'd like it to be but this is nothing like 1929 to 1933 so i think you got to give a high grade, and it's because the president made the right basic diagnosis. the president said at the first meeting we had with him after he li
before the meeting, that's not a good sign. what obama does for the nomination, i don't kkow, but, clearly, what we have is an administration who can't get the story straight. i think as long as that's out there, this is going to be a very troubled period for susan rice and her perspective nomination. lou: the idea is that any president as a matter of tradition has the right to his choice to fill whatever office is at issue. in this case, the secretary of state. this kind of dissension and contradiction and contest between the two parties over ambassador rice really creates a different dynamic. do you think? >> well, it creates a different dynamic, i think, on two levels. number one, the appointment of the secretary of state is an extremely important thing for the country, but in this instance, again, it can want be used as a side show that obscures a much more important thing that we have to get to the bottom of here which is why didn't commander in chief take action he should have taken to protects americans? as far as susan rice is concerned, she is actually in a position now s
. send your love to the rescue. donate today. >> sean: more of president obama's liberal allies in the mainstream media are flocking to the defense of u.n. ambassador susan rice for the role she played this this administration's cover-up of the benghazi terrorist attack. once again, they're using the race card to do it. this time it is coming from "the washington post" in an article written by the editorial board entitled the gop's attack on susan rice. it reads in part, "could it be as members of the congressional black caucus are charge that they're targeting ms. rice because she's an african american woman." they deny that, and we don't know their hearts. signatories, nearly half are from the forme form confederate. everybody knew within two or three days that this was a terror attack, except the obama white house. five sunday shows. the president two days later can't answer if it's a terrorist attack. call him out o on it, and it's race card, four more years. >> you can't color-code criticism. this is nothing to do with her skin color, susan rice. it's all about her competen
with the fundamental problems in america? >> three very good questions. i would say that obama's first term has two parts before and after the 2012 election just as the clinton administration was also to parts. i talk about the last six years when they took the house and the senate and forced the welfare reform and cut the capitol gains tax. they never talk about the first two years where growth and jobs were flat when the democrats read everything. so i'm all in favor of a last six years of the clinton administration, lower tax rate on capital gains republicans wanted more the beginning of spending restraints, and none of his spending policies to fruition. and the two year set in obama's term the question is what is the third act. my guess is the third act looks a lot like 2011, 2012. we talk about the dual mandate. so eda 6% of the ads for personal attacks. romney gives people cancer. that kind of stuff. not morning in america not didn't i do a good job or here's my plan for the future here's my entitlement reform. the republicans actually voted for and vote for a real budget score by cbo twice w
